Bryan's View: Week in Kibera

Young boys posing for a photo one evening after playing football among other games along the rail tracks of Kibera's, Soweto West village.


Joshua peeps through a gate, this is what's left after houses in his neighborhood had been demolished to pave way for the construction of permanent houses near the railway line in Kibera. 

A web of illegal electricity wires criss-cross each other above the skyline of Kibera's, corrugated rooftops.

It's tea-time in Kibera. This is the typical table setup during breakfast. Mugs full of hot milk tea to push you through the day.

Kids playing at the banks of one of the rivers that passes through Kibera, most of these rivers are now contaminated with human excretes and other toxic materials thus creating a breeding ground for various infections. 

Bryan Jaybee was born and raised in Kibera slums where he still resides. He is 22 years old and a journalism student at Multimedia University of Kenya, currently in his final year. Bryan will be sharing an insider’s view on life in Kibera every Tuesday on our blog with his photos and words. You can follow Bryan on instagram at @kiberastories for daily posts on life in Kibera.
